They are terrible gearboxes.V.W should be ashamed of themselves!! I've had lots of trouble with mine.

Me too. My gearbox has been reconditioned and I still have intermittent problems changing down at inappropriate times and not wanting to change back up again in reasonable time. This is mainly on the open road. It’s unnervingly.

Transporter T4 (1994-2003)

I’m about to buy a 1997 Volkswagen transporter with 335000 km on it, is this a big risk on it breaking down and getting problems, the owner says it hasn’t missed a service and just got a new belt last month.
He wants $6000 but I thought that was far to priced and was thinking $4600,
Would anyone be able to let me know much about the van please.
Parts etc if it’s due to brake down with the km.

Cheers

Pretty normal for any car. Once engine has cooled sufficiently, it will turn off

1996 T4, Installed OEM (possibly Chinese)left hand side driveshaft but the axle is still about 5mm away from the end of the wheel hub splines after torquing to 100 Nm. The inner CV went out of mesh on a sharp incline left hand turn with power applied. I am concerned that the shaft length is the issue and the axle to hub at the spline could be the problem?
THE original German made inner CV seems to have more range?

My t4 transporter 2.5 petrol runs rough and splatters especially when it rains. When it does start, It misses and stalls if I don"t keep the revs up, until whatever is happening warms up or dry up. I put a new No 30 relay but made no difference. What I have noticed is that it only does this when its raining. In fine weather it starts first turn 99% of the time, but when its raining, or there is moisture in the air, its the reverse, it struggles to start and runs really rough. i have to ride the clutch to get going with splattering, coughing, and farting along the way. After about 15 mins of driving it slowly, clears up and then it runs fine. I have taken the van to my mechanic, but it starts for him first time and the problem has long gone by then for him to diagnose. He also looked at fault codes but nothing. Anyone else had a similar problem with their VW? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Nick,
over the past year, my 2001 automatic T4 stalled whilst driving every time it went through a deluge of rain. As yours too seems an electrical issue you might want to verify any exposed cracks or wires etc. We decided to replace the coil just last week. X fingers, will keep you informed. Kees

Hello everyone, I’m having the same issue. When it rains the car stops and it’s having problems to start again. I tried sealing the windscreen, check the distribution, spark plugs. Also now, revs, Speedo, fuel indicator are not working properly.
I was about to cross to QLD and I got stranded in Glen Innes, the mechanic is trying to find the solution but any information you have on how you solve your problem would be much appreciated. I’m supposed to fly back to my country this month.
Thanks in advance
